A Quick Birthday Card

My daughter is attending a birthday party this evening for one of her friends so I made this quick little birthday card to hold the gift card she is giving. This gal is after my own heart- she loves squirrels! I have several squirrel images but my daughter choose this little group of "friend" squirrels from The Greeting Farm set, Forest Friends. Truthfully, this set had never seen ink so I was pleased to put it to good use. After coloring the image with Copic markers and stamping and cutting the acorn to add some dimension, I teamed it up with some DSP from SU. The little flower layer was embossed with my Swiss Dot embossing folder from Cuttlebug and the cute little yellow gingham is cut by the Top Notch die from SU. I added a layer of Regal Rose ribbon and added my Nestabilities cut oval image. I thought I was finished but Mary Elizabeth wanted me to make it look like a birthday party. I had the little balloon from the Build-a-Bear stamp set already cut and colored, just laying on my workspace so that was an easy add on. She wanted me to add a candle to the acorn so I found one in A Muse's Cupcake Builder set and added a tear drop Twinkle sticker that I colored yellow with a Copic for a flame. M.E. was very pleased with this and I hope her friend is, as well! It's ALWAYs A Stampin' Good Time! Take care!
